BBQ

New Orleans' barbecue game gets an upgrade at Mid-City's Blue Oak. And though they aren't doing anything wacky or crazy-inventive (that's not what real American barbecue is about, after all), their low-and-slow game is on point. The menu features excellent ribs and sandwiches, plus solid sides like roasted Brussels sprouts. Just don't ignore the specials board; if you're lucky, you'll come across a Flintstone-sized whole steer rib, which is just as fulfilling as it sounds.
